dbo:abstract
  • Movie Central (occasionally abbreviated as "MC") was a Canadian English language Category A premium cable and satellite television channel that was owned by Corus Entertainment. Movie Central was designated to operate west of the Ontario-Manitoba border, including the territories. Although the channel's name implies that it focuses solely on theatrically released motion pictures, Movie Central's programming included original and foreign television series, made-for-cable movies and documentaries. Movie Central was carried by various Canadian cable, IPTV, and satellite television providers in Western Canada including Bell TV, Shaw Direct, Shaw Cable, Access Communications, Telus TV and Westman Communications Group, among other providers. Its programming was comparable to that of The Movie Network (TMN), a separately-owned pay service which is marketed to Eastern Canada, in areas located east of the Ontario-Manitoba border. Movie Central was headquartered at the Corus Quay building in Toronto, Ontario, alongside Corus's other television properties, despite that city being located outside the service's territory. On November 19, 2015, it was announced that Corus would discontinue Movie Central and Encore Avenue and end its participation in HBO Canada, and that The Movie Network and TMN Encore would become national services. TMN owner Bell Media made a payment of C$211 million to Corus for its services in transitioning MC subscribers to TMN. (en)
